–The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) will lead a delegation of executive-level HR professionals during an eight-day trip to Brazil, touring leading companies in Rio and São Paulo.
U.S.-Brazil Executive HR Exchange Delegation will take place November 26-December 5, 2011 and include 26 senior human resource executives representing 23 different U.S-based companies and organizations from 14 U.S. states.
The purpose of the SHRM-lead delegation is to introduce U.S. human resource executives to best-practices management in Brazilian companies and multinational firms operating in the country. The delegation will gain insight regarding the challenges—human resource, economic, and societal—of growing a company in the Brazilian marketplace.
The delegation’s corporate visits will be hosted by six prominent Brazilian and multinational corporations based in Rio de Je Janeiro and São Paulo:
The delegation is sponsored by SHRM in cooperation with the
Associação Brasileira de Recursos Humanos (SHRM’s counterpart in Brazil), and in partnership with
People to People International.
“Brazil is a quickly-emerging economy with success stories to tell, HR solutions to share, and business insight to offer—this is why SHRM is leading a delegation of executive-level HR professionals to visit major companies in Brazil,” said Brian K. Dickson, senior vice president of professional development and strategic partnerships at SHRM, and delegation co-leader.
SHRM co-leader Howard Wallack, director of global member programs at SHRM, added: “Knowing what’s next in HR means knowing what’s next in Brazil—the country’s workforce issues and staffing solutions are being observed globally as its economy grows in ways that will continue well beyond the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics it’s preparing to host.”
